Illness - What To Do?

Any child suffering from a doubtful rash, sore throat, discharge from eyes or nose, sickness or diarrhoea should be kept at home until a doctor has certified the symptoms have disappeared.


Should a child become unwell at nursery, every effort will be made to contact the parent/ guardian or emergency contacts indicated on the enrolment form.


Willow Brooke Nursery Management must be informed if a child is absent from the nursery through illness.

At Willow Brooke Day Nursery we believe that when children become unwell the best place for them is at home. However, if a child attends nursery with a minor illness we will agree to administer medication as part of maintaining their health and well-being. We will not administer a new medication for the first time as it is advised that parents/ carers keep the child at home for the first 48 hours to ensure no adverse side effects occur as well as to give time for the medication to take effect.


We aim to adhere to parents/ carers wishes when it comes to administering medication, by recording the reason as to why the medication is needed with a signature from the parent.

Accidents in the nursery

Should your child have an accident at our nursery in nuneaton (no matter how slight), this will be recorded on an accident form.


The parent/ guardian will be asked to sign the accident from at the end of session when required.


In the event of a more serious accident the parent/ guardian will be informed immediately and the necessary action taken.


In the event of an accident at home you will be asked to complete an accident at home form. This will ensure that staff are familiar with injures to look out for.
